New Manchester Walks will now take you around Southern Cemetery, final resting place of some of the greats of Manchester history.

The guide is Ed Glinert, author of “London’s Dead” (published by HarperCollins), who has turned his attention to the graves and memories of Matt Busby, John Rylands, Joe Sunlight, Daniel Adamson, Tony Wilson and L. S. Lowry, as we explore Britain’s biggest graveyard.
